What to do while on holiday in the Bay of Arcachon?

The Bassin d'Arcachon is a beautiful ocean lagoon separated from the Atlantic by Cap Ferret. It's famous for its oyster farms, which breed unique and highly reputed oysters, making it an ideal destination for lovers of luxury and cuisine. Nearby, the basin's salt meadows are a stunning natural reserve packed with previous fauna and varied flora. Nature lovers can explore the marshes, meadows and lagoons of the Tech Bird Reserve by boat or canoe or opt for a trip on the water in the area of Certes-Graveyron.

Your holiday in the Arcachon Basin lets you choose your favourite place to swim. Will you go for the calm, gentle waters of the Basin, or do you prefer the thrilling Atlantic waves? Take fun family swims in the Basin and try adrenaline-pumping surfing sessions on the ocean at legendary spots like Lège-Cap-Ferret and Teste-de-Buch.

Fancy a boat trip? Take a little cruise along the Basin to the Île aux Oiseaux, or climb onboard an oyster boat for the duration of a tide to see how the local fishermen catch this luxury shellfish.

If you're looking for a challenge, climb the 110-metre ascent of the Pilat Dune. At the top, you'll enjoy an incredible panorama, stretching from the Landes forest on the land side to the Banc d'Arguin on the ocean side.

From your vantage point high on the dune, you might even be able to catch a glimpse of your campsite, with its swimming pool gleaming in the light!
